Archival data from a survey of parent observations was used to determine the prevalence of social and behavioral problems in children with agenesis of the corpus callosum (ACC). Parent observations were surveyed using the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) for 61 children with ACC who were selected from the archive based on criteria of motor development suggesting a relatively high general level of functioning. Younger children with ACC (ages 2–5) were rated as primarily having problems with sleep… 
Mental State Understanding in Children with Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum
TLDR
It is suggested that reduced callosal connectivity may contribute to the development of higher-order social-cognitive deficits, involving limits of complex and rapidly occurring social information to be processed.
Sleep Problems in Children With Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum.
Agenesis of the corpus callosum and autism: a comprehensive comparison.
TLDR
The hypothesis that congenital disruption of the corpus callosum constitutes a major risk factor for developing autism is supported and specific features that distinguish autistic behaviour associated with callosal agenesis from autism more generally are quantified.
Physical, motor, sensory and developmental features associated with agenesis of the corpus callosum.
TLDR
Compared with siblings, individuals with ACC exhibited a pattern of delayed motor development, difficulty with balance and bimanual movements, large head size, poor muscle tone, poor depth perception, reduced pain perception, sleeping difficulties and an increased proportion of left and mixed handedness.
Social cognition in individuals with agenesis of the corpus callosum
TLDR
Results suggest that the tendency for deficient social cognition in individuals with ACC stems from a combination of difficulty integrating information from multiple sources, using paralinguistic cues for emotion, and understanding nonliteral speech, which would contribute to a less robust theory of mind.
Smaller splenium in children with nonverbal learning disability compared to controls, high-functioning autism and ADHD
TLDR
Children with HFA and NLD demonstrated behavioral symptoms of inattention and hyperactivity similar to the ADHD groups indicating that corpus callosum differences seen in the NLD and HFA groups are not related to these behaviors.
Awareness of Consequences in Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum: Semantic Analysis of Responses
TLDR
Results were consistent with the hypothesis that persons with AgCC are deficient in the capacity to imagine the emotional and cognitive consequences of potential actions on others, particularly in the face of greater situational and social complexity.
Autism Traits in Individuals with Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum
TLDR
Interestingly, performance on the AQ’s imagination domain was inversely correlated with magnetoencephalography measures of resting-state functional connectivity in the right superior temporal gyrus, suggesting individuals with AgCC should be screened for ASD and disorders of the corpus callosum should be considered in autism diagnostic evaluations.
Attention, impulsivity, and vigilance in agenesis of the corpus callosum.
TLDR
Moderate levels of difficulties in sustained attention in AgCC are suggested, particularly in maintaining response inhibition and in vigilance, that are modulated by age and sex.

TLDR
The need for increased vigilance by caregivers and health-care professionals of individuals with callosal disorders is suggested, as early detection and intervention may help prevent or ameliorate health problems in this population.

Behavioral characteristics of 187 young adults with autism
TLDR
The results of the present study were indicative not only of the significance of obsessive behavior in autism, but also its significance in terms of delving further into the psychopathology of the disorder.

TLDR
The hypothesis that a significant proportion of parents of autistic children show impaired executive function was supported and was significantly correlated with the interviewer's pre-test impression of social abnormality among parents of autism children.
Patterns of Parent-Reported Problems Indicative in Autism
TLDR
A feature of behavior problems independent of sex but influenced by age and IQ level could be identified for the autistic sample with highest relative scores on the scales measuring attention problems, social problems and thought problems and low scores onThe scale for somatic complaints.
